“Create something on a T-shirt and wear it for the rest of the day.”  -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“A party, like a meeting for worship, is not operating on the level of reason…. It transcends logic. It slides willingly and consciously (if it is a good party) toward a celebration of the fact of being alive. The celebrants at a party share bread and wine and reach toward a communal touching, for a moment, of an existence that is not limited by the individual ego. The sound of a party is a sound of amity, of human beings who have become for a moment, and for nonaggressive reasons, something outside themselves.”  -Jessamynn West

“Robots do not celebrate anything. Celebration is an expression of joy, which cannot be mechanized.”  ― Ravindra Shukla, A Maverick Heart Between Love and Life

“And I say, How could I be lonely?  I’m the one in charge of celebrations!”  -Byrd Baylor

I’m In Charge of Celebrations is a great children’s book by Byrd Baylor.  It is about a young girl who finds the joy of celebration in everyday life.  You can fine Byrd Baylor’s book here:
